20 Unreal Engine 4 titles in development for Switch in Japan

Posted on April 14, 2017 by in News, Switch

According to a recent with Automoton, Epic Games Japan representative Takayuki Kawasaki said that there are currently 20 games built in Unreal Engine 4 being developed for the Switch.

In the interview, Kawasaki went on to say that there may be “even more” in development now and that progress on adding Switch support for the free version of Unreal Engine 4 is happening soon.

On Unreal Engine 4 support for Switch in general:

“Unfortunately, there were not any Unreal Engine titles at launch, but in late March, Snake Pass, which was one of the titles playable at GDC, launched in America and Europe, and at the Nintendo Switch Presentation, there were titles such as Shin Megami Tensei. In Japan, there are about 20 titles being developed that use Unreal Engine, so I think that they’ll be announced gradually from here on.”

When asked if those 20 titles were Switch titles, Kawasaki had this to say:

“These are titles that use Unreal Engine, for Switch, and are being made in Japan. There may even be more. And now we’re gradually moving forward with Switch support for the free version [of Unreal Engine 4]. That way, as long as you have a Switch development license, you will be able to develop for Switch even with the free version.”
